  1. Very interesting blog on somethings to experiment with when you have some spare time. I am a chocolate lover, not a big fan of pumpkin but something i will try out.

  2. I like the idea of your blog sharing recipes and projects you can do your self. I really liked your tip on washing your clothes in the buckets if your electric power out.
    The picture of the recipes also were eye catching enough to entice me to want to try and make them.
